    Default Phone / remote caddy

    I made this phone and remote caddy for mom to hang on the bed rail of her bed. She is less mobile since her hip surgery and I think this will help her locate items.

    It is lined with Bosal foam.

    I love it! I know it will come in handy for her with the bonus of not having to stretch to try to reach something on the bedside table and risking another fall!

    Fantastic! I just love Bosal! What a useful, yet beautiful "tool" for your mom. Mmmmm, now to think of a way to convert it to use on a couch arm.....think I've seen them somewhere.......the hunt is on.

    What did you use to hold it to the bar, snaps, velcro strip? I love this idea.

    Anita,
    Just measure the arm of your chair so that it tucks in the cushion. An easy way to check is to use a tea towel for length, then measure the width of the items that you want to put in pocket. Add at least 2" per pocket. I used Velcro for mine, but you wouldn't need that. You can also make a bed caddy the same way.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I used Velcro strips, as it will wrap around metal bar.

    Very clever. A remote holder for the chair arms would be great. So the way I understand it, just make it go under the cushions to hold it in place?

    What a clever and useful remote holder. I'm sure it will come in handy or your mom. The Velcro is a great idea.
